Blue and White Ironstone Dish Find

Hi everyone!

I have a serious problem. I have a major blue and white dish addiction! I love all kinds of dishes as you all know, but for some reason, I cannot pass up pretty antique blue and white dishes. It is just impossible. I walk into a thrift store, some freaky thing happens to me and I go on autopilot straight to some kind of blue and white dishes they have. Maybe I should open up a "Blue & White Dish Store". Oh, wait! that would mean I would have to actually sell my dishes! I know, how about a "Blue & White dish Rental store"!

Any way, here are my latest loves.

Aren't they beautiful!
I got 2 dinner plates and 2 salad plates.
Just love the design!
Can't go wrong with gorgeous Ironstone made by Meakin!
They have a pretty scalloped edge to them.

  15. Hi Diann..
    First.. I LOVE blue and white..
    your Ironstone is fabulous..
    really like it..
    (am thinking envy, covet..
    but we all know the 10 commandments..
    one is thou shall not covet!)
    love the post..
    and could really use some address labels..
    with CORRECT info..
    warmest hugs..

  16. I used to collect blue & white pitchers, and although I don't decorate with blue at the moment I still love them all. They're lined up in a glass cupboard looking very pretty and charming. ::Jill

  20. I love your new dishes Diann! You sound like me when it comes to blue and white dishes! If I ever had to give up any of my dishes, I certainly would not be able to part with my B&W's and especially not my Blue Willow!
